Review: Fluffywuffs – Positive
I met the owner of Fluffywuffs online more than a decade ago via online forums where we both did art for a dress-up doll system and he is one of the people who first introduced me to lolita fashion. This year, he launched an Etsy shop. It’s primarily a fairy kei / pastel kawaii sort of aesthetic, with a fun quirky twist.
Many of the pastel accessories also would work great with sweet lolita. I’ve been trying to build back up my pastel / kawaii accessory collection as a lot of the stuff I bought ~ 10 years ago has become lost or is showing wear, and the look now is more OTT than it used to be by a lot. So, I picked up a couple pieces from the shop.
I ordered via Etsy on September 29th, and my package arrived on Monday October 5th, which is quite quick (under a week for packing and shipping) given that this is an indie brand and the postal system is having a time right now, and there was a weekend in the middle there. The package was adorably decorated with sticker and cute washi tape
Inside everything was safely packed up in a wrapping of foam and inside of that were cute little packets wrapped in bubble wrap, more washi tape and super cute stickers. Small table scatter / confetti and additional stickers were included making the whole thing super cute.
First up is the Pastel Glittery Star Ring. This was only $4, and is a good size, it’s also larger than my Angelic Pretty ones. It has a nice shape, not so rounded that it looses it’s shape, but still rounded enough that it blends well with cuter styles. I was having trouble getting my phone camera to capture the color, but it’s a nice shade of yellow; not too neon. It’s not tacky or sticky and there are no pockmarks or bubbles in the surface.
Next up is the Dazzling Unicorn 2-Way Clip/Brooch. This was $12.00 and there are a variety of other similar heart 2-way clip designs, both featuring unicorns like this and featuring other motifs, in a variety of colors. The price point seems to change a little based on the complexity, but this also appears to be one of the more complex ones they sell. I felt like the sax x pink colorway would work well with some of my pastel Angelic Pretty things. The sax is a nice shade for with AP, it’s not gray tone like it’s showing in this photo. I was really struggling with getting photos that were color accurate without the light reflecting.
Lastly, I picked up a cute 3″ pinback button, which was $6, and I have to apologize in advance because it’s not printed blurry or grainy, that’s my photo of it that is grainy, and it’s grainy because I had to take the photo in shadow because it’s nice and shiny and it was just reflecting the light like mad. It said big button in the description but I missed that it was 3″, so I was pleasantly surprised by the size when it came in. These are now sold out, but it did say that more colors would be available in the future, so I suspect it may be something that may come back. I really like that it has the plastic back piece as I find the metal ones can sometimes get rust spots that can transfer to clothing when worn.
My overall order was $26.55 with shipping, which is very reasonable given that I’ve spent significantly more per item on similar items in the past.
Bonus: here are a couple things I didn’t buy because they wouldn’t go with my closet, but that I really wanted to share. That “RAD” 2-way clip is giving me major late 80s childhood nostalgia. I had a Rock ‘N Flower with the same sunglasses as a kid, and it just absolutely looks like something barbie would have rocked back in the day.
